PAST MATTERS The Eighth Australasian Urban/Planning History Conference Wellington 9-11th February 2006 Urban and planning history, in their explorations of the cultural, economic and environmental dimensions of city life, provide important inputs to heritage identification and management. By promoting an exchange of ideas between urban and planning historians and those involved in the heritage sector, including planners, managers and curators, this conference will forge new links and help to shape how we view and interpret heritage. The development and expansion of Australasian urban and planning history scholarship has always, and will continue through this conference to be a constant sub-theme. Thus the conference will also provide the opportunity for Australasian urban and planning historians to present their current research. Encouragement is also given to post-graduate students to be actively involved in the conference through the presentation of papers. The conference invites traditional papers and proposals for theme sessions and roundtables, which address: -- Histories of urban heritage. -- The interrelationship between historical research and heritage policy. -- The contested meanings of history and heritage. -- Themes in the urban/planning histories in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific.
